2.5.1. Innovative development programme
The innovative development programme of PJSC RusHydro for 2011-2015 with an outlook to 2021 was approved by the Board of Directors (minutes dated 02.08.2011 No. 130).
Priority directions for innovation development
2.5.2. RusHydro Group’s projects
22.214.171.124. Development of recommendations for the implementation of optical measurement transformers of current and voltage
In the branch of PJSC RusHydro – “Nizhegorodskaya HPP” created a digital testing ground for innovative optical transformers of current and voltage in the experimental-industrial operation. Introduction at the facilities of PJSC RusHydro solutions “Digital substation” based on optical transformers of current and voltage will lead to cost savings compared to standard projects.
126.96.36.199. Prototype testing of mini-HPPs with orthogonal hydropower units
At the site of Khorobrovskaya small HPP to undergo pilot testing installed the sample unit container type with orthogonal hydraulic unit. After the test the unit can be put into production. Developed unit designed for creation of small hydropower plants in remote areas without centralized energy supply.
188.8.131.52. Research and study the PSPPs with underground reservoirs
In 2015, completed a study of the basic technical issues associated with the construction of the pumped storage power plant at great depths, carried out the necessary geotechnical, geophysical and hydraulic studies and calculations, developed basic construction solution of PSPPs with underground reservoirs. The obtained results allow to increase the investment attractiveness and efficiency of the construction of pumped storage power plants in the Central region of the Russian Federation.
184.108.40.206. Development of technology for the application of the system of external reinforcement of building structures composites from carbon fibers for hydraulic engineering
Elaboration of standard technical solutions, technologies, regulations and methods for strengthening building structures hydraulic structures with the use of external reinforcement.
Selected three R & d projects with a total value of more than 100 million rubles
- Technology of strengthening of non-rock basement of hydrotechnical facilities with the help of polymer deposition.
- Develop a method for evaluating the condition of hydraulic engineering structures and hydroelectric generators HPP on the monitoring results of amplitude-frequency characteristics of oscillation in conjunction with a soil base.
- Research opportunities and development of recommendations energy efficiency of the main technological cycle HPP to increase power generation.
2.5.3. Plans for 2016
In 2016, the Company will complete the development of the programme of innovative development for the period 2016-2020 with a vision to 2025.
In the field of project activities of the RusHydro Group will work on projects aimed at improving operational efficiency of the Company’s divisions and key subsidiaries companies.
